I never thought i'd be the one asking this.
I'm the kind of guy who loves most meats, as long as it's well done and not fatty, anything goes usually.
However since they've been finding horse meat in meals here in the UK (and other countries now), it's put me off a lot of meat products. Now i find
that stupid because horse is supposed to be a lot healthier for you than other meats. I think it's the whole deception thing.
I watched a programme on UK telly the other night called "Horse meat Banquest", A chef cooked up horse in different ways and got people to try it.
Hardly any did, although it wasn't the best selection of people. During the programme they went into all aspects of the scandal, and looked at
take-away meals that contained meat too.

shouldn't be, and maybe the odd fish.
I'd say i'm looking at the labels more. So are the kids, which is obviously a good thing. I haven't gone total veggie yet, but it's getting that
Is anyone else bothered by this, or are you still eating any old crap from the supermarket. I've even gone off my weekly doner kebab after seeing how
some places get the meat, or what is loosely described as meat.
